Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer

Open Question

Printer is printing a purple cast to photos

I'm using a Kodak ESP5 and I'm trying to print off an image that is mostly black and white but has a spot color of blue on one concentrated area. I know to switch the color to black and white but that takes away the blue and the effect of my photograph and I definitely need that blue color in the print because I'm using this photo in a portfolio.

The weird this is that when I print on glossy paper the purple color comes out in place of the black and white. BUT on regular computer paper the color is fine the black and white is perfect and the blue is great; however I do not want to use just regular paper. I've switched my color settings multiple times and nothing is working. Can anyone help please?

Printer will only print purple


on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.

My hp printer casts purple to black and white prints


Tried your settings with no luck. Also tried every canon profile listed to no avail.

These are my settings:
Color management:
Color handling: Photoshop manages colors
Source space: sRGB...2.1
Printer profile: Canon MP620 Series GL2/52G
Rendering: Perpectual

Media Type: Glossy Photo paper
Print quality: standard
Effects: borderless

Printer Preferences:
Color Intensity: manual-set-everything is 0-matching:none


I am using Kodak glossy paper and I am using that setting. I am printing a digital scrapbook page with color. I used black and white pictures in the page trying to get rid of the purple trees, so it shouldn't be printing any color at all in the photos, but the limbs are still purple.

Under color settings in PSE I have checked "optimize for printing".

I am off to the store to pick up another package of photo paper..maybe HP or Epson will be better (I think those are the other 2 choices in the store)

Will check back in after I try the other papers

Using Canon iP4600, I'm trying to print a black-and-white photo with a black background and a half-tone image in the front, but I keep getting purplish and black stripes instead of an all black background....


Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards
